Applications of Digital Simulation of Gaussian Random Processes

  • Masanobu Shinozuka
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 225)


In the last two decades, much research effort has been devoted to the application of the stochastic process theory in the general area of engineering mechanics and structural engineering for the purpose of predicting the dynamic structural performance with a better accuracy and of assessing the over-all structural safety with a better reliability by considering more realistic analytical models of load-structure systems.
